    Finally got the ferry booked, Dover to Dunkirk 10th July 8am
    Maiden voyage over to France in our Windsport travelling down to Dover on the Saturday so no rush, find somewhere to stay overnight then on to the ferry.
    Any tips, advice or experiances greatly received :Smile:
    Heading down to Parc Verger stopping at a couple of sites on the way down a few nights apiece then Parc Verger for a week.
    Dogs passports sorted, need to locate a vet nr Parc Verger for treatment they need 24-48hrs before our return.

    We have just come back from France today.
    we travelled down to the Loire and then across to St Jean de Monts (just below St nazaire), used aire all the time and some were free.
    We took our dog Toby for the first time and were really worried that we would have problems, but it was plain sailing, we booked the tunnel, and went to a vet the day before we were due home at Le Crotoy, cost 24 euros and I took my own flea and worm medication for toby, the vet was good, then when we got to the eurotunnel this morning they check his chip, and passport and that is it, simple.
    hope your's go as simple as ours, have a good trip

    Will be at Dover tomorrow night. We stop over on Marine Parade which is a few hundred yards from the ferry port. Plenty of vans stop there.

    Have a great trip.

    No problem over the vet, Dave and Amanda, as our local vet (who speaks English) will book an appointment to tie in with your departure time and in turn fit in with the ferry.:BigGrin:

    Many of our guests have used her, and the approval ratings are 100%!!! If you confirm that you wish to book an appointment, we'll do this for you in advance of your arrival. You can pm or email to pvbureau@parcverger.com. If you have a preferred time for the appointment, just let us know.

    We are looking forward to meeting you.

    Some useful videos to give you an idea of process on you tube, this one is for P&O not DFDS (new Norfolk Line), others will come up in the list to the right when you enter you tube.
